The Youth Development Program (YDP) target audience is middle & high school boys and girls and the goal is to develop young men and women with an understanding of religion to incorporate into their everyday lives.
The program consists of Qur'anic education and sports activities. We are initially beginning with a bi-weekly overlapping time schedule, with the hopes of growing into a weekly consistent program. The sessions will be moderated by our new youth coordinator, Ahmad Saqr.
Thank you and congratulations to Fadhil Hussain on his dedication in building a bonfire pit/sitting area at the Islamic Center as his Eagle Scout project and his recent Court of Honor ceremony.

Islamic Center In The News
Every community has a narrative. Either that community controls the narrative or the narrative cont rols the community. Now more than ever the American Muslim community has to take control of the narrative. This can only be achieved if as a community we are building bridges and inroads with media. Media outlets want to cover stories and do pieces that people are interested in. They want viewers, readers, comments, and discussions. It is critical that as a community we are more visible and more vocal in the media.
We have been blessed for wide and positive coverage of the Center. When there is positive coverage we must all give feedback and acknowledge and appreciate the work of the media. Please take a few minutes to review the media links and give positive feedback where you feel comfortable.
